We're happy to announce that, for the first time ever, BusKill cables can be purchased in-person in Leipzig, Germany.
The BusKill project has partnered with ProxyStore to make BusKill laptop kill cords finally available from a brick-and-mortar location. You can now go to the following location and purchase a BusKill cable with cash or cryptocurrency.
BusKill is a laptop kill-cord. It's a USB cable with a magnetic breakaway that you attach to your body and connect to your computer.
If the connection between you to your computer is severed, then your device will lock, shutdown, or shred its encryption keys -- thus keeping your encrypted data safe from thieves that steal your device.
We don’t consider hologram stickers or tamper-evident tape/crisps/glitter to be sufficient solutions to supply-chain security. A better solution (in addition to making the hardware designs open-source) is to let users purchase the device anonymously. Generally, the best way to defeat interdiction is to go to a physical brick-and-mortar and pay with cash.
ProxyStore has, among other things, a proxy ordering service where you can:
- order items from the Internet anonymously,
- pay anonymously, and
- get the goods forwarded to you (by mail) or pick them up (in-store)
In addition to their ordering services, ProxyStore offers key community services at its physical location in Leipzig, including high-security paper shredding (P-7/F-3), MIC-free printing (black and white only, color contains MICs, and a cabinet with TAILS for anonymous Internet surfing.
